Now, Voyager

"The untold want by life and land ne'er granted - 

Now, Voyager, sail thou forth to seek & find." 

- Walt Whitman

I've always loved this snippet of Whitman, which isn't really a poem at all, but a lovely turn of phrase. There's the "Now Voyager" movie, of course, which echoes the theme, but I think it's a wonderful coming of age sentiment for any time in one's life. 

To letter the phrase, (probably just the second half) I keep thinking of nautical items: luggage, trunks, ships, sails, oceans, etc, and ideas of seeking & finding. Lenses, binoculars, etc...
